Is Your Trash Listening To You? I.O.T.

A Unique Video from a Truther in Southern California by Mitch Santell

The internet of things is a real thing and while it is fun to be connected, has it gone too far?

Technology is not a neutral tool. There are thousands of engineers working behind the scenes to make their company’s products persuasive and to keep users coming back.

Millennials check their phone about 150 times a day, according to Harris. People are always refreshing their social media accounts to see how many new likes their posts received. It’s a reward system similar to what happens when we pull a slot machine lever. “Even when we’re aware that we’re being manipulated, it doesn’t change the fact that the design is still appealing to us,” Harris said. “It’s based on how our psychology works.”

Never in human history has something been able to constantly project images directly to our eyes, he said, adding that if those images depict our friends having fun without us, it can damage our self-esteem. The AI algorithms behind such apps are designed to prioritize the best pictures posted—which over time can change the physiology of our brain and cause anxiety or depression.

The IOT is back in the news again this week. A judge has ordered Amazon to turn over audio data from an Alexa device related to a murder investigation.

There’s a few interesting things raised by this warrant. The investigators believe that Alexa may have captured audio of the attack itself and uploaded it to Amazon servers, which means that Alexa would have been listening despite the “wake word” not being spoken. This would go against how Amazon tells us the device functions. The investigators may be hoping that Alexa may have incidentally heard something that sounds like the wake word, and recorded audio based off of that. This has happened before.

They are also asking for a list of all devices that connected to the speaker during the time period in question. This means that Amazon is collecting information on everyone that visits your home and when based on their mobile devices that they bring along with them.

These new developments only add to the pile of issues that come with placing internet-connected microphones in your house. There’s the obvious problems like the security of the device, a hacked Alexa can listen to everything you say and do. And deeper problems like being unable to figure out what the speaker is collecting. The device can easily listen and record based on specific marketing or “national security” phrases and wait to upload the information until the next wake word is spoken. You can cram low quality audio in surprisingly small spaces, and because all communication with home servers is encrypted, you can’t know what information is actually being transmitted. A great example is Google Android sending GPS information to Google even while GPS was explicitly disabled.

Positive Aspects Of Social Media

Commentary by Mitch Santell

POSITIVE-IMPACT-SOCIAL-MEDIA-1200
Regardless of how much I have complained about Social Media here at After Hollywood.Online throughout 2018, I can say that I am like-minded with these social media rules for CEO’s so check this out.

8 Rules for Corporate Communicators

  1. Social media is a haiku.If you have a complicated point to make, don’t post on Instagram, write an essay like they do at Google.
  2. “La compagnie n’est pas toi” (to paraphrase Louis IV). The company is not you, unless your name is on the front of the building.
  3. If you blow up, don’t double down: When wrong, admit it and move on.
  4. If you’re not a politician, stay away from politics. I served on a board that had a former Mayor on it, and we let him do all the politicking. He was a pro, we were amateurs.
  5. Don’t hit “send.” It is the most dangerous button after the nuclear button on President Trump’s desk.
  6. Unless you are North Korean, you are a capitalist. Don’t act like your main objective in life is saving humanity if you make money renting spare rooms to tenants.
  7. Virtue doesn’t look good in Pradas. Unless you are a celebrity, social justice ranting is going to look strange coming from you.
  8. Shut up: No one ever complained about a post you didn’t write.

2018 New Year’s Gov. Shut Down

Just in case you were wondering by Mitch Santell

Gov shut down 2018 December
Do you even care that the Regan and Bush Museums Remain Open?

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military- industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

The U.S. Government Has Shut Down 18 Times Since 1976.

NPR points out:

Since a new process was put into place in 1976, the U.S. government has shut down 17 times [Update: Make that 18]. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan each dealt with six shutdowns during their terms in office, lasting anywhere from one day to 2 1/2 weeks.

The Dark Side of Information Overload

Comments On A Sane Mind by Mitch Santell

The ability to Think, to live Zen, and to use discernment is something that the majority of humanity cherishes in my view. Don’t allow the A.I. of social media systems to ruin your real interactions with the real world. This blog post from Joel Latto may help.

Joel Latto

I’m an information addict, no doubt, but then again isn’t that the case for the most of us these days? The thing is that unlike (unfortunately) most of us, whenever I find something especially interesting/intriguing online, I dig deep and go for the original source – behind the scenes, so to say, in order to see what really is under the polished end-product, which is fed to the masses.

The Internet has indeed made the creating, consuming, sharing and searching for information easier than ever before, but it has not done so without consequences. The openness of the Internet has lots of debatable downsides, ranging from cyber terrorism to illegalized peer networks, but although many of those regularly gain flashy headlines, I’m writing about an issue that is often ignored: the quality and the worthiness of the data itself.

Living An Authentic Life

A Commentary on Truth by Mitch Santell

Realizing that we no longer have privacy is hard for some to grasp. Oh, you may think that you are doing nothing wrong but doesn’t it eat at you that everything you have ever done online is being stored somewhere?

ControlConv1

There is an exciting algorithm that is created with all of the searches at Google and other platforms, they put everything into a 4D Quantum computer and use it to predict the future.

To add insult to injury, I just received this email directly from Gab.com:

GAB

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday Breitbart published a leaked internal Google briefing about the shift Silicon Valley is making towards more censorship online. This followed leaks earlier in the day from The Intercept, which show how Google is contradicting themselves in regards to the censored search engine they are building for the Chinese government. You can read the briefing that Breitbart published here: Google: “The Good Censor”.

On page 53 of this internal Google briefing, Gab.com is cited as a “challenger app” and notes how users are moving to Gab in response to the censorship of Silicon Valley. Google argues for a “European” approach to speech standards on the internet, favoring “civility” over freedom.

Silicon Valley has shown their true colors, which is why they recognize Gab.com as a threat to their control and dominance over the internet. They are rejecting the cherished internet ideals of liberty and free expression in exchange for censorship and partnerships with the Chinese government.

This is why Gab is winning and will continue to win. We are adding tens of thousands of new users every week, and our funding round is being completely powered by you, The People. In about 20 days we have raised $670,000 and will quickly meet our goal of $1.07m. We are hiring more engineers to speed up product development, make the site more user friendly, and build out our own infrastructure to escape the chains of Silicon Valley.

If you’re interested in investing and becoming a shareholder you can learn more here and invest as little as $252.

PS: developers please check out our new API.

Thanks for your continued support!

Thanks and remember to speak freely!


No, I am not a pitchman for Gab.com, and I am not trying to get you to purchase their stock, I just wanted to make you aware that everything you write, speak and record is all monitored and tracked, and collected.

After Normalcy Bias & Cognitive Dissonance, Wake Up!

Audio Reflections by Mitch Santell

reel-for-front-3 TASCAM

On October 10, 2015, I launched a two-hour show radio show every Saturday night on American Freedom Radio.

It is now almost three years since I initially launched the show and decided that my followers here at AfterHollywood.Online might enjoy hearing some of my thoughts on the state of American and the world at that time. A lot of it still applies to right here right now in 2018.

In the very near future, I’ll be launching a brand new podcast that is in pre-production right now, and as I formulate the new show, I openly share with you my last show. (Remnants and Luminaries).

The new show? It will be of course: “AfterHollywood.Online.” I think you’ll like it and it will be a different format than any other show I’ve done.

Make it a great day, enjoy your weekend and remember to do something kind and extraordinary for someone that makes a positive difference in their life.

One final note: Think about how much things have changed since 2015 and think about where we are in 2018 during the mid-term elections. It is a wild ride! Since this recording was made, I did acquire an iPhone 7s because it is just a necessity in America in 2018. May my comments inspire you and don’t hesitate to reach out to me any time you have a comment, question or a connection to share. Peace happy followers!



 

Get Off Of Social Media While You Can

Reflections by Mitch Santell

Social Media according to one of the key people who were responsible for building Facebook users stated that social media is ruining the fabric of how our society works.

Pour yourself a fresh hot cup of tea, coffee or cocoa and check out why I dumped my Facebook account and I only keep Twitter as an extension of this blog and website.


MIND CONTROL
The Reign of Evil

“In the Kingdom of the Blind, the ONE EYED shall be King”
‘This drug……IMPEDES mind control.’–Fritz Springmeier
“Two percent of the people think; three percent of the people think they think; and ninety-five percent of the people would rather die than think.”—George Bernard Shaw

[Stockholm syndrome is the foundation stone of the Matrx. Mind control is the Reptilians Matrix of Evil, put into action by their on planet proxies: the Psychopath Satanic Reptilian hosts.  It consists mostly of information control (seeLying Medical mind control), Suppressing sexuality, and spreading Fear, through controlled MediaPoliticsMovie industryMusic industryWikipediaTelevision, & Education, with help from chemicals (FluorideChlorineDrugsAspartame, Vaccine poisons), and Death Towers, with Murder Inc keeping a final lid on the truth. This allows them to get away with Human Abuse and Mass Murder for Energy vampirism.     Then you have their NSA/CIA mind control (seeMK Ultra SmithSpringmeierFordSodomic mind control) out of which come JonestownFeminism, Monarch, Serial killers  Mind control killingsSchool shootings etc, and explains the melt down of people like Britney Spears.  You can see how it is just mind control that keeps Allopathy Inc and it’s rackets such as Cancer Inc afloat.] shootings etc, and explains the melt down of people like Britney Spears. You can see how it is just mind control that keeps Allopathy Inc and it’s rackets such as Cancer Inc afloat.]

#Hashtag Development

This really inspired me by Mitch Santell

Ciaran Blumenfeld wrote a brilliant article on hashtags so check it out along with the link to her Twitter feed.

@CiaranBlu

You’re launching a campaign, hosting an event or trying to get the word out about a cause…

It makes sense to use a hashtag to distinguish your messages from millions of others floating around twitter and instagram. But choosing the right hashtag can be a daunting task. Here are 11 tips to consider, before you hit the # key and send your messages off.

1. Is the hashtag already taken?

This is the first question that bears asking. You can search for posts on both Twitter and Instagram to see if a tag has been used in the recent past. If it has, you should probably move on.

2. Is the hashtag too long?

Twitter recently upped their character limit to 280 (but not in all languages). This helps, but replying and re-tweeting messages can eat up those additional characters fast. Nothing kills a conversation quicker than running out of space, which is sure to happen if you choose a too long hashtag. Plus longer hashtags are more prone to typos and being forgotten.  Try to keep your tag to 10 characters or less.

3. Does the hashtag make sense?

It’s tempting, and often smart, to use initials & abbreviations to keep your hashtag short. But this only works if your audience is already familiar with this form of shorthand. For example, conferences routinely use abbreviations: #BWE12, #NonCon, occasionally adding in the year. If you are shortening a term, make sure to make that shorthand standard and make it public on your site and/or in your marketing materials from as early a date possible to avoid obscurity.

4. Is the hashtag an attention grabber?

Consider adding a short action/emphasis word to your tag if you want to amp up the attention. Words like now, go, win, stop are action oriented and create a reader disruption when combined with your brand/message. Example: #GOBRONCOS, #CRUISENOW

5. Does the hashtag rely on camel casing?

Camel casing (using upper and lower cases to seperate words) a hashtag may look great, and add emphasis, but in practice tends to fall apart. #TheEnd becomes #theend which doesn’t read well sans camel casing. Even worse, camel casing can lead to inappropriate messages.

6. Does the hashtag contain a word that is hard to spell, commonly misspelled or that has more than one spelling?

It’s also a good idea to avoid words that are frequently misspelled or that have more than one spelling. #Caribbean #Grey are two examples.

7. How does the hashtag tell your story? How does it relate to your brand or help you to achieve your ultimate goal?

Keep your goals in mind. Your hashtag should be a reflection of the action or impression you wish to create.

8. Will you be using the hashtag again?

Whether you intend to use the hashtag in a recurring fashion, or not, you should consider whether you could. If your hashtag is an accurate reflection of your long AND short-term goals, it will have legs.

9. How will the hashtag play on other forms of social media?

Even if you don’t plan to use the tag on other sites at this time, consider whether you might want to in the future. Would the tag transfer? If someone used the tag in a Facebook update or wall post, would it register with the reader? The best hashtags are immediately understood and continue to have impact, even when used away from the original medium.

10. Who will (ideally) be using this hashtag?

Keep your user in mind. If they are part of a small special interest group, and are interested in a closed conversation, creating a viral, trending tag is not a priority so much as creating a tag that works well for the group members.

11. Will this hashtag offend or anger anyone?

Before you settle on a hashtag, consider whether there might be any negative fall out. Even if the hashtag has never been used, it could be “owned” in the sense that it is already a common phrase familiar to others & being used by someone else. If your hashtag is unintentionally rude or offensive, it’s unlikely to generate the successful outcome you desire.

The ability to connect with your audience as your blog grows is an important one. Here are some great tips and insights on blog posting. It helped me, and I know it will help you.

The Art of Blogging

Ever since blogging became mainstream people have been debating about how long blog posts should be. A lot of bloggers may read one or two posts on it, and try to follow the rules – never revisiting the issue for as long as they blog. This can be a mistake.

For a definitive answer, the following are three things to consider when you’re trying to decide how long your blog posts should be.

These Ten Things Will Inspire You

This is an amazing blog post that inspired me so I want to inspire you the same way! Enjoy!

These Ten Things Will Inspire You

We all need a bit of inspiration in our lives.

Where there is inspiration, you can count on creativity being close by.

A painter might be inspired by the sight of a tree and as a result of their inspiration, they end up creating a painting of the tree.

It is as though inspiration opens the figurative door for creativity to enter.

So, I can clearly understand the reason why most bloggers need to feel that deep sense of inspiration before they go about putting together their blog posts.

Here are some things that inspire me (And, there is a high probability of some of those things inspiring you too).
